Great stay
I loved my stay here! The room was compact but well thought-out and decorated, as well as spotlessly clean. There was no noise during the night. The breakfast was great - fantastic selection from the buffet then the cooked breakfast made to order. It says everything that the only criticism I can think of is that the customer notices are in Comic Sans!

Treasure in Portsmouth
After a month in the United Kingdom, we finished up at The Pier for the last four days of our holiday. We couldn't fault the overall service and care with which Gill runs this bed and breakfast. We would highly recommend The Pier to anyone visiting Portsmouth.
